company tries to claim their auto-related business did not benefit from the obama administration's auto loan. he writes, we survived because our business model and the money we have in the bank to survive these downturns, it would not have provided lax with any direct dollars. really? but who does lax enterprise count on as clients? general motors? chrysler? ford? sure lax didn't get direct dollars, but if it weren't for the automobile loan forked out by the obama administration, if mitt romney had had his way and let detroit go bankrupt, there wouldn't be all those cars for lax enterprises to make parts for, don't you think? tonight in our survey i asked, who do you trust when it comes to foreign policy decisions? 95% of you say president obama. 5% of you say mitt romney. >>> coming up, a new study shows how racest ohio's anti-early voting law was. nina turner is here with us. we're right back.

that the obama administration has demonized the 1%, the true job creators and any increase in taxes would require him to lay off taxes. he just doesn't have enough money. and he ends with this thinly-vailed threat straight from the republican makers and takers textbook. "i can no longer support a system that penalized the productive and gives to the unproductive. my motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed and with it so will your opportunities. if that happens, you can find me in the caribbean sitting on a beach, under a palm tree, retired with no employees to worry about." hold it right there. he worries about his employees. is he alone? does he care? of course, he cares. but this man is greedy. he can't help himself. he can't help hipgs for how much he hates president obama. this is only time he used employees for pawns to advance his own political agenda, but it's not. pe takes credit for george w. bush being elected in 2000. whenever i saw a negative article about al gore, u put it in the paychecks. i had managers do a survey. if they liked bush, we made them re

by regulations, by taxes, by borrowing, they are being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> the romney campaign is taking remarks out of context. alex, will it work or is it just desperation? >> i think it's a real mistake whenever the romney campaign tries to play on the same field as the president and joe biden. nobody is a better surrogate, speaks more to the pain of the working and middle class than joe biden. don't even go there, paul ryan. that straight to camera shot, you saw both campaigns come out with ads. president obama is a much better speaker. he's more direct and communicates warmth and honesty. from mitt romney it seems hollow. if i were the romney campaign, i would stay with the fix it thing. do everything short of coming out with mops and brooms and talk about the economy. whenever they try to play the genuine american attack, it never works for them. they fall flat and it always rings hollow. >> alex, richard, great to have you with us on "the ed show." >>> coming up, the obama campaign released a new ad hammering mitt romney for outsourcing j

the past four years. and what a second term obama administration would look like. and what it would do for middle class americans all over this country. i think we achieved that. i think what we didn't expect is for that mitt romney to show up. i know mitt romney is an aggressive debater, a great debater, in his own words. was one of the things he used as a credential to becoming the republican nominee. we didn't expect him to be aggressively dishonest last night. >> was the president taken by the number of lies? >> well, you know, i think that, you know, today looking back at last night, you saw what the president did on the stump today. called mitt romney out for what he did last night. not just about his $5 trillion tax cut but a number of other things. and, you know, we'll continue doing that. as i was listening to your piece coming into me, and you talked about our ad. we went on the air today. we're going to continue doing it pointing out all the things mitt romney said last night that are basically not true. it's almost as if he forgot what the last six years of running for p
